It's a TU-154...


Money does not bring you happiness. But it's better to cry in your own private limo than on a cold bus stop.

Whoa.

I had a dream, just last night, that I was flying on a 727 somewhere in Europe when two men hijacked the aircraft and killed the flight crew. Some passengers wrestled the hijackers down and I landed the aircraft in Germany, but I didn't know where, because just as they were going to say where I was, my wife woke me up.

Pretty scary, huh?
